How One Unrequited Love Inspired an Acclaimed Debut Novel | Interview with author Harker Jones

Meet Harker Jones

Many months ago, around about when I got sick, Harker contacted me. It took me a while to respond, and then surgery, recovery, etc., etc., and I eventually said, I wouldn't be able to review his book, but it sounded like he had an interesting story to tell, so would he like to do an interview with me? Yes, he would. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I finally got round to following up with him. I am grateful for his patience, and fortuitously, it's September, which seems fitting since his book is called Until September. I'm going to let Harker tell you his story, in his own words.

Please give Harker a warm bloggity welcome.

What Deanna Read #88: August 2023

Did y'all know that the best intentions with getting back into things can be completely railroaded by menopause if you're a woman of a certain age? Geez!! Life has not been fun recently. Menopause. Zero stars. Do not recommend. But onwards...

Here's what I read for the last month.

What Deanna Read #87: July 2023

So the whole getting back into it weekly thing has not worked out great. Honestly, the health is better, but combine being very behind after months of not working, I have a lot to catch up on. I'll get there. But in the meantime, not much reading is getting done.

Here's what I read for the last month.

Observations on bookish things #5

Observations on bookish things

⚠️⚠️⚠️This was written a VERY long time ago, but reading back, I thought some things were still relevant, and others not so much. I'll make a note of those.⚠️⚠️⚠️

Hello!! I do not remember the last time I posted on bookish things. Do you? I'm sure it's been a while. Of course, I could go back and check, but where's the fun in that? 😛 I want to say there's been lots of interesting things going on, but the reality is things kinda ebb and flow. Some days are interesting, some days are not.

What Deanna Read #86: June 2023

Hello bloggity friends, I would like to say that I am getting on top of things, but in reality, my health goes from one thing to another and because of everything that has happened, menopause has kicked in. For those in the know, you KNOW this is rather unpleasant. You name the side effect, I've got it. Ugh!

I've also got a new author client that's super fun, and while we're not doing much promo right now, if you enjoy audiobooks, her stories are all straight-to-audio, and free to listen on my YouTube channel as I'm producing and hosting them for her. It's been a real learning experience, but do go check her out. Her stories are super sweet and fun.

Here's what I read for the last month.

What Deanna Read #85: May 2023

Hello!!! I thought I was getting back on track. Slowly, but yes, back on track. But then Steve got the man-cold, and he gave it to me. Only, I think my immune system is shot from all the other stuff that happened, so I got his cold, which turned into the flu, and that became a chest infection. Fun times! I'm slowly getting better.

Y'all, I started this post weeks ago thinking I'd get caught up. And tomorrow is the last day of June. I'm sitting in bed right now with my laptop on the bed table thingy Steve bought me for my post-surgery recovery. I'm using that a lot as the chest infection really set me back and I've struggled somewhat the last few weeks with my health. I'm hanging in there though.

Here's what I read for the last month.
